Even if you’re on the other side of the console war fence, you have to admit that PlayStation’s selection of first-party titles over the past decade has been pretty extraordinary. It’s that strength that makes PlayStation so dominant in the industry today, and it’s still trying to improve on that position. A recent presentation from the publisher revealed that it aims to eventually cover “all major genres” in order to expand its portfolio of products.
The presentation in question, put together by Sony CEO Jim Ryan, lists a number of genres the company considers “primary,” including action, sports, platformers, RPGs, racing and shooters. ing. It’s unclear if PlayStation will attempt to cover genres other than these (such as horror or his JRPGs), but it’s important to have a wide variety of titles to appeal to just about everyone’s specific tastes. It is clear that you are aiming for
To achieve this, PlayStation has also revealed that it aims to release at least two major titles each year. This is a rather ambitious goal. These titles will be a mix of single-player and live-service games, with an even balance of big blockbuster series and new IP. We know PlayStation is aiming to release 10 of his live service titles in “various genres” over the next few years, but it’s nice to see the company still focusing on single-player experiences. is.
PlayStation already has a pretty extensive lineup of titles, but it’s interesting that shooters and platformers are listed as core genres, especially since the company doesn’t have much to offer in that regard. PlayStation’s acquisition of Bungie last year means he has one of the most popular live-service shooters at the moment, but it’s made to share with Xbox, so it’s actually cannot be considered exclusive to PlayStation.
It’s a similar story with platformers. Astro Bot and Little Big Planet aren’t the big franchises PlayStation is probably looking for, and Ratchet and Clank can’t be narrowed down to his one particular genre. It will be interesting to see if any of these new IPs promised by PlayStation address some of its weaknesses. These days, you can’t be a PlayStation fan without encountering a single-player action-adventure game. PlayStation is right to diversify.
We may see some of these new IPs at tomorrow’s PlayStation showcase, but Metal Gear Solid is expected to take center stage. Still, the future looks very bright for PlayStation fans, and they can look forward to playing a wide range of titles.
